HP Procurve configuration
Posted on 2013-05-31
I have a configuration that I need some assistance with for a client. At their location, they have a Cisco ASA with one port configured as the inside interface. Connected to that is an HP Procurve. The first procurve that is connected to the ASA is also connected to 3 other procurve switches. At this time, there are a total of 4 procurve switches sitting behind the firewall on one single vlan. IP addresses are assigned by a Windows box. Since all worked when they were plugged in, the client did no configuration changes to these devices. Now, for my problem.
1. I need to create a trunk between two of the switches.
2. I need to create 2 vlans on 2 of the switches.
3. I need to tag vlan traffic between these 2 switches.
The issue is that they are using a /24 for the DHCP server and have run out of addresses.
They want a new vlan created so that the wireless is no longer part of the original lan and segregated from all of the wired connections.
I have already built out a new interface on the ASA, created a new DHCP scope and tested connectivity to the internet on this new interface and all is working with no issues.
Of the 4 switches, they are broken down as 2 on each floor. We do not care about the way the second switch on each floor is connected to the other switch as they can remain on the same vlan as the original. It is just the 1 switch on floor 2 that is connected to the 1 switch on floor 3 that is my concern. I cannot get into the switch via the web interface so I am going to have to use the console on this. Anything that I need to know about?
